Mountain Wedding Photography, northern California

Arnold, California Woodsy Wedding
Mike and Laura

Driving into the woodsy forest back-roads for this mountain wedding was a great anticipation. I had met Mike and Laura earlier in the year and they told me they wanted a mountain photographer to document their wedding day event. Mountain weddings are my passion. I had photographed this charming backwoods venue before in Arnold, California back in 2010 and I was glad to experience it once again, the smells of pine and dirt, the surroundings of trees, the colors of earth, and the excitement of photographic possibilities. Not only did we capture their story with friends and family, but they allowed us time to capture their creative bride and groom photos in the forest where we ventured along a river and into the woods.  We also came upon a rather large tree of lady bugs; I have never fathomed I could see so many all at once. Later that evening, even though there were trees everywhere and the sky was like circular window above us, I was able to capture a night time stars photograph with our wedding couple just before leaving. I am excited to share these images because of the “nature” of this wedding. (wink).
